There were reports in the press that Varun Dhawan has seriously injured his foot while doing intricate dance steps for Remo D’Souza’s Street Dancer 3D.
But Varun’s father, director David Dhawan, debunks the injury theory.
Laughingly he says, “It’s nothing. Just a sprain in his ankle. How will he fracture his foot during dancing? It’s not an action scene. But yes, the level of dancing in Remo’s film is something else. You require tremendous dancing skills to try these steps.”
How high does David rate his son as a dancer? “Oh, very high. My boy can out-dance nearly everybody on the dance floor. He has a natural flair for rhythms. You mark my words, this film will be a game-changer as far as dancing in our films is concerned.” Overnight, as it happened, Katrina Kaif was replaced by Shraddha Kapoor in Street Dancer 3D. David is happy with Shradha but he feels Katrina is a dancer on another level altogether.
“I remember when she was shooting for my film Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya with Salman. Even then, her dancing left me shocked. Her expressions were to die for.”David hopes Varun and Katrina to come together for a project in future. Meanwhile, Varun and his co-star Shraddha Kapoor leave for London for the next schedule of Street Dancer 3D....
